The Atlantic reports that 82 percent of the fatalities from terrorist attacks in 2013 were in 5 countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, and Syria. Iraq alone accounted for 35.4% of the fatalities. All of these countries say triple-digit percentage increases (or more) in 2013. The violence in the Islamic world is like watching a snake swallow its own tail.
